Interesting. I can't say I've ever seen anyone upload a torrent file along with the lossless files here, but I certainly haven't seen everything.

I would be beyond happy if that feature were enabled or figured out for etree - bt.etree.org is littered with torrents whose files never make it here for whatever reason. I tried to keep up for a few months earlier this year but got burned out after a while...

archive.torrent testing yields high d/l bit-rate with my uTorrent client...

I just noticed that all the etree items I submitted (except for stream_only) have archive.torrents created for them. Torrents have been created for my new submissions and my old submissions. This includes items I haven't edited in a couple of years. Here's my LMA upload list (excluding stream_only items): twenty etree items with new archive.torrents

All twenty items had their bit torrents uploaded and seeded to bt.etree before they were added to their LMA collections.

Re: "uploading torrent files" - I admit to doing this once, after I first noticed some discussion here about adding torrents. Funny, now this item has both torrents: http://archive.org/details/phil1959-04-05.pitch.dehiss.upgrade.flac

I just did a quick test for one of my shows. I loaded the new archive.torrent URL into my uTorrent client, and I selected several files to d/l. It works very well. My d/l rate was full speed (my ISP speed limit). Nice job all around!

Thank you! Go Aaron.

As for bt.etree.org-- I never visited before, and it is sophisticated and huge. I wonder if we can work better with it.

Greenone-- lets figure how to make this all work.
